Yeah, I'm probably not going to buy any of these. They just don't interest me that much.

*sees Sunstorm*


Well, screw that.

I was thinking the same thing until... Sideswipe. Maybe, if I'm hard up for a toy and it's there and looks better than I thought it did here, and...

Hot on the heels of our other official images, Hasbro have also sent out official images of five of the figures in wave 2 of the Transformers Alt Modes line. Below you can see: Hound, Bluestreak (who is grey and red), Dirge, Sideswipe, and a Silver Optimus Prime. Although there’s no sign of the previously seen Bumblebee, Acid Storm, Cliffjumper, or Smokescreen it's likely that they'll all be coming soon. Check them out and let us know what you think of them in the comments below.

Yeah, I'll probably be a sucker for that Bluestreak.

It's hard to get a sense of size on these since there is nothing in the display case to compare them to.
Are the boxes the same size as Funko Pop Mystery Mini boxes?

Why do some of them have purple logos when most have gray logos? Are the purple ones the chase figures?

Sunstorm looks more like Nova Storm than himself.

Some of these guys look really unhappy. Angry, happy, aggressive I get, but why make figures that look just plain depressed?

While we got the latest reveals in the Alt Modes line a few days ago, we now have some great news for fans wanting these: they have been found at retail.

Tigertrack has found the first wave at TRU in Metairie, LA.

I didn't expect these to actually be coming to mass retail toy venues. I was thinking they'd be more at home in places like gift shops, novelty shops, places that sell nick nacks and such.

Toysrus does have a whole section with stuff like this and other blind bag items.

I found these in the Transformers section at the Winston-Salem, NC TRU. $6.99 a piece.

It's interesting that these seemed to hit pretty uniformly at the same time across the country. I found these in CT earlier this week. Usually you see the first sighting out west somewhere, and then they trickle East.

Our podcast star xRotorstormx went wild on these new Alt Modes figures and bought the entire first wave and sent us pictures. While they are blindbagged, there is a small hole in the back where you can try to figure out which character is in the box. A video review after the images will show you how to find the one you want. You will also be able to get an idea of the scale of these when looking at the reviewer handling them. Thse are small 2.5 inch one step figures and the first wave features:

Megatron
Ultra Magnus
Optimus Prime
Prowl (who looks super grumpy)
Nemesis Prime
Starscream
Skywarp
Thundercracker

Here are a few words from Rotorstorm regarding her new purchase:

Last night I was able to get my hands on these adorable (yes, I said adorable!) little figures from my local Toys R Us. To me, they are more of a display piece, much like Kreos, as they are simple 1-step figures but I found them quite enjoyable to play with.

They come in blind boxes, similar to the Loyal Subject figures, but much cheaper ($6.99 each). On the plus side, there is a small hole in the back of the box that allows you to see inside a bit so you can try and figure out what character is inside.

In vehicle mode, they look like Micro Machine versions of the G1 vehicle modes and have little wheels that you can drive them around :D which I got a kick out of. Be careful though with your Starscream nosecone, as I ended up somehow being able to spin him in the wrong direction and scuffed the tip a little. :(

In robot mode, they are a little top heavy...no surprise there... so it takes a little finagling to get them to stand without any support but it can be done!

and...if you feel compelled...decapitate your prowl to form PROWLASTATOR!

Overall, I think they all look good. Megatron and Prowl could use a little more paint detail but I love that the trucks remind me Micro Machines, Starscream has sparkly blue paint, and how can you not love sad face Prowl?

If you're looking for something simple and fun, I say pick some up. I'm definitely looking forward to wave 2!

These might actually be kind of cool, if not for those big stupid logo tabs on the top of the head. For me that just ruins what would otherwise be a neat little inexpensive toy.

Sabr, this is the section I was referring to. Not sure if they will show up there or in the transformer aisle, but Toysrus does have a novelty blinbag collectables section:
